While the Hamilton Township Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) works with Township officials to support continued progress in the local economy, it has also continued one annual tradition of giving back to our hometown’s future business leaders.
The commission, chaired by Lori Danko, recently joined with Mayor Jeff Martin to present four Hamilton high school students with scholarships that will help support their pursuit of business degrees in college.
With proceeds from its annual events, the HTEDAC was able to provide $500 scholarships to recipients from the three public high schools located in Hamilton. The students were selected by HTEDAC’s Scholarship Committee from among the schools’ graduating seniors who are planning to study a business-related field in college.
This year’s recipients are Hamilton High West’s Marissa Blankenbiller, Steinert High School’s Samantha Marusky, Nottingham High School’s JngJiwan Gill and Rushil Shah, whose parents were present to accept his award.
“This year’s class of scholarship award recipients is another fine example of the outstanding high school students across our community who are planning to continue their formal education,” says Mayor Jeff Martin. “I want to also recognize and thank the dedicated members of our Economic Development Advisory Commission for continuing this annual scholarship program.”
The Hamilton Township Economic Development Advisory Commission (HTEDAC) is an official municipal government commission comprised of volunteers that holds many events and programs throughout the year to assist Hamilton’s efforts to support economic development across the community. In addition to the scholarship program, the commission holds various job fairs, an annual business awards dinner and assists in other projects and initiatives. Through sponsorships and private dollars, the Commission works to conduct such efforts without a cost to Hamilton taxpayers.
